Rehearsing Practice Research

    Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


    In this talk I will introduce some examples of the ways in which practice can contribute to producing new insights and perspectives on how we live together. Like artistic practice, practice research is not necessarily about resolving problems, but rather proposing methods in which to consider the social, aesthetic and political aspects of the world. I will present some commonly used terms and definitions of practice research as well as offer instances of how to conceptualise a practice research project. In order that the session does not mirror formulaic articulations of practice research, such as the application of practice experiments, interviews and surveys, I would like the group to work together in sharing and naming their personal approaches to practice research. By taking Stefano Harney and Fred Moten’s interview with Stevphen Shukaitis, entitled The General Antagonism from their book the Undercommons as a starting point, we will reflect on how these ways of thinking are used in our own individual practice research. In the final part of the session there will be time for participants to ask questions about their specific research projects.
